As many of you already know, I’m a self confessed fragrance addict with a love for premium scents. I think a scent says a lot about a person and I believe you can really define who you are by what scent you wear! One fragrance that I’ve loved for many years (probably since school!) is the amazing and unique Giorgio Armani Code. I adored the original Armani Code for its fresh aroma, with notes of lemon, bergamot, tobacco and fine leather giving it that sensational and addictive scent. It’s one of those fragrances you immediately recognise. One of those ones that literally makes heads turn when someone passes by as it’s so familiar yet timeless – and let’s face it, we all want that to happen!

Last year in April, Giorgio Armani got in touch with me to hear my thoughts on their second release from the code range, the Armani Code Profumo. You can read all about it in my post here, but in a nutshell… the release had the traditional and recognisable scent from the original code with additional hints of mandarin, amber, fresh green apple and nutmeg. This completely transformed this scent into a more evening/night out version that felt so much more premium and exquisite. Still to this day it has remained a favourite of mine, that I tend to wear on special occasions such as meals out with friends or drinks at a bar in the city.

But one thing I found with the Armani Code range is that they were all very ‘evening scents’, something that personally I wouldn’t quite wear during the day… until I tried their brand new Armani Code Colonia.


The Armani Code Colonia is everything you want in Armani Code/Armani Code Profumo but to wear during the day. It offers a combination of fresh citrus notes including bergamot, mandarin, pink peppercorns, sage and orange blossom. You also get freshly base notes of amber and tonka making it last all day long, perfect for a stuffy office environment. This new arrival is the ideal day time scent, embracing all of the classic aspects of the original Code with a new fresh outlook. I’m loving this scent and people have been noticing this change at work asking what I’m wearing.

Oh I do love a good complement!
